The Smith's Tropical Luau is set within the lush Smith's Gardens on the edge of the Wailua river, a true tropical paradise on east Kauai. Join the celebration with a delicious dinner, Polynesian revue, and fire knife finale.
Arrive at the Smith's Garden, centrally located on east Kauai, and accept a shell lei greeting upon your arrival. Take some time to explore the 30-acre (12 ha) botanical and cultural garden surrounding the luau area before dinner. Feel like you're deep within the valley forest, surrounded by fruit trees, bamboo forest, and lush ferns.
Start the evening with a traditional imu ceremony—the unearthing of the pig from an underground oven. Dinner follows with a spread of delectable options, including Kalua pig, teriyaki beef, mahi-mahi, and chicken. With sides to choose from, including salad greens and fruit, you'll be sure to find your fill.
As the pre-dinner entertainment winds down, the lights fade as the show begins. Celebrate the song and dance of Polynesia with beautiful lyrics and lovely hula hands from the performers. The rhythm of the Tahitian drum dance, the colorful costumes, and the Hawaiian grace will leave you thrilled. Finish off your evening with the daring precision of the Samoan fire knife dance.
